Fresh and Open Family Living
The main-level great room is open and bright, with high ceilings and lots of natural light. The walls are painted a sea-glass inspired blue with crisp white trim. An ample and relaxed sectional sofa has a chaise lounge and is piled high with plush throw pillows. There’s plenty of room on the couch for everyone to snuggle up for a family movie night or a fun game night.
The tidy and efficient kitchen has clean white cabinets, sparkling quartz workspaces, and a classic subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare fresh-brewed coffee in the mornings, quickie beach snacks in the afternoons, or a complete dinner in the evenings. A cozy breakfast nook space has four beachy teal barstools, while a formal dining space has seating for six people.
Plenty of Private Sleeping Space
The private master suite is located down a short hallway and features a king-size bed and mounted flat-screen television. A wood-tone paddle fan and lots of ocean-inspired touches create a stylish yet casual private oasis. The ensuite master bathroom has a step-in shower.
Two more bedrooms on the main floor offer more sleeping space for your crew. One bedroom has a king-size bed, while the other bedroom has a queen-size bed and a twin-over-twin-size bunk. A full-size bathroom can be accessed from the hallway and has a tub/shower combo.
On the ground level, a fun bunk room and hang-out space will be a hit with all the kiddos in your group. With two twin-over-full-size bunk beds and a trundle, there’s space for seven people to sleep comfortably. There’s also a foosball table, flatscreen television, and an attached half bath with a washer and dryer.
Paradise at The Purple Turtle
Outside on the covered patio, a spacious dining table provides the perfect space for alfresco meals. Grill up some fresh seafood on the charcoal grill and blend some frosty margaritas at your very own cantina bar— the ground floor of The Purple Turtle was built for entertaining. There’s also a spacious yard that’s fully fenced-in, so you can let your four-legged family members run around and play safely.
The Purple Turtle is located around the corner from the Jamaica Beach access point— it’s about a five-minute walk away. You’ll also be close to local shops and restaurants, too. The quiet, residential neighborhood will have you feeling like a Texas coast local, while the easy access to the beaches will keep your whole family in relaxed vacay mode. Let The Purple Turtle show you the way to a magical Galveston getaway.

Great location ! The beach is a a small walk away ! The neighborhood is so quiet ! The decor in the home is so beautiful!
This house was ADORABLE! The second we walked in, we immediately noticed the cleanliness of the place because it smelled so clean and fresh. The downstairs bedroom that is detached from the house was the perfect hangout spot for the kids. The interior decoration is beautiful and very homey. We will definitely be back in the future!
The space was great. We had 13 total - 6 adults, two teens and a small gaggle of kiddos . . . so with all of them it actually was very roomy. The downstairs space was great for the little kids and nice to have a space for them to get away to. The location was great - we took a walk around the neighborhood for some exercise - very quaint. We could have walked to the beach but with all of our stuff and kids in tow we drove and it is a quick and easy drive.
awesome time! much better option than a hotel.
This beautiful house will comfortably accommodate a large family. The living room is large enough for the kids while the adults play games in the adjacent, huge dining area. The beds are comfortable and none of the bedrooms are small. The fourth bedroom is downstairs and is accessed separately from the rest of the house. A tankless water heater means there is always hot water for the next shower! Though the kitchen is small, it is well appointed. There is ample space for parking multiple cars. It is a short drive out of the neighborhood to the beach.
I would highly recommend this home! It was very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. Also, communication with the owner was very easy. The home is just a short golf cart or car ride to the beach. You can drive your car on to the beach too. Again, I would highly recommend staying at this home! I plan to stay there again next time I visit Galveston!
Great Location minutes from the beach. Sparkling clean with chic interior decor. This house has great space and very roomy. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a beach getaway.
Lovely home in a great location. Neighbors were quiet and neighborhood has a good vibe. Beach access a short drive away and a small corner store in between was nice. Large grill and outdoor seating set were great perks for our group. Chad is a responsive and helpful host.
We had a great time at the Purple Turtle. It is decorated beautifully. Plenty of space for our group of 7. We really enjoyed our time there and hope to be back one day. The fenced in yard added some privacy.
